Blue Wednesday

It doesn't take much to cheer me up. Today has been a blue day and I'm not feeling down!

I noticed these brave pale blue muscari peeping through the ground in a sheltered flower bed in the front garden. I hope the promise of colder weather this week does not kill them off. Today is pretty overcast but at least it isn't raining.

I travelled to see one of my new friends from the blogosphere for coffee this morning. Gina blogs at The Occasional Quilter  and lives just a thirty minute drive away. We have exchanged tweets and comments on each others blogs but never met. Gina has been quilting for a long time and had so many beautiful, multi-coloured quilts to show me. She seems to have covered every technique in the book. I only hope I can be like that in time.  She also makes the most amazing cake. I was totally overwhelmed when she presented me with a pretty blue and white mug rug. She knew I was just learning to do foundation paper piecing and so had used that technique for the block. I had a great time asking questions about quilting and meeting a fellow crafter so the morning flew by. Thank you Gina!

Finally on the blue theme, I have washed and blocked a lacy card for Isobel. It is almost dry and just needs a button and then it is good to go.

Have a great day,



  1. What a lovely blue day! All you needed was some blue skies to make it even better!

  2. Oh my...I am thrilled for you to get to meet a blogger living so close to you! Love the mug rug. And I adore those sweaters you have knit in the last post...WOW.

  3. It was great meeting up with you and glad you enjoyed yourself and that you still love the mug rug. Looks great in situ. xxx
